Houston's office space bubble is about to burst

Houston has more than 17 million square feet of new office space currently under construction, but the joyride is about to end. Much of it is of single-tenant campuses ? Irving, Texas-based Exxon Mobil Corp. (NYSE: XOM), Houston-based ConocoPhillips (NYSE: COP), California-based Chevron Corp. (NYSE: CVX) ? and are often tenant-owned, and it seems as though many firms simultaneously developed an edifice complex. The future occupants of this new construction are vacating a significant amount?
